PM Modi reiterated that the well-being of the students has to be the top priority for the Government.

Following the announcement of the decision, while some CBSE students wrote, “Itni khushi mujhe aaj tak nahi hui,” ICSE students, on the other hand, simply said, “Excuse me?” State Board students also urged the authorities to postpone or cancel their exams amid rising cases of coronavirus. They said, “Not only CBSE board! Cancel all the boards” and further added, “Simply prolonging decisions not good for students mental health”.
